Amar'e Stoudemire will resume working out with Hall of Fame center Hakeem Olajuwon for the second summer in a row, according to his training adviser Travis King.

King said the workouts will take place sometime in August at Olajuwon's ranch outside Houston. It's not clear if Tyson Chandler will join him, which was on the table in 2012.

Olajuwon has turned his full-court basketball gym into an NBA player development center during the summers, and he reportedly charges $50,000 a week for private instruction. He has worked one-on-one with Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and LeBron James.

Unfortunately Hakeem can't keep him healthy.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Virtually every big man in the NBA needs to BEG, PAY, and GROVEL for Hakeem's tutelage.

When will a big man ever learn & master the unstoppable sky hook? Boggles the mind.

Playing with D'Antoni and Nash all those years might have hurt him even though it propelled him to fame, since it limited his player development and marginalized him to a PnR big. Only now he can realize the value of the post and is trying to correct what he should have learned in his younger years.

The only ay Amare' will contribute something of significance to a team is if he can travel back in time and play with a younger Steve Nash.


Stoudemire is and always has been gigantically overrated.
